I was running my 200A with the original globe for a few hours this afternoon, shut it down for the evening. 20 minutes later I hear a ding and walk over to the lantern only to discover a crack has formed. How does this even happen nothing disturbed the lantern while it was cooling down and no drastic temperature change. I am a little bummed the original globe is now a loss.

I wiped it down with glass cleaner and a paper towel last week but I had ran the lantern a few times since then with no issues until tonight.

what does the logo look like?  Appears like it might be a late 70’s globe so maybe not original anyway.

I couldn't tell I am not extremely versed in the Coleman lanterns. I picked the up the 200a  not too long and assumed it was the original globe for it.

If you wash the globe - does that lead to cracking?

It happens, probably a minor flaw from a previous hit or just a defect that finally got to it. As long as the globe was in there normally and not binding there's probably nothing you could have done about it. American Mantle has unmarked globes for about $10.

It shouldn't, but there have been reports of it off and on, and it seems to never happen during cleaning.  I think in some cases, it could be due to folks using an abrasive on it, such as a scouring pad, but certainly not always.

If you get it before a piece of the glass falls out, you can run a line of super glue along the crack, wait for it to dry, and then scrape the excess off with a razor blade.  If you leave excess on, it will darken.  This won't hide the crack, but the globe will still be usable.

I will run a bead of super glue for the time being.

Thanks.

Get the thinnest super glue you can find-sometimes called "water thin". Put a drop every few inches on the line of the crack from the outside of the globe. Let dry, then scrape off excess with a single-edge razor blade. It won't be invisible, but it works.

I'm pretty sure that was a replacement globe, with the straight, red Made For Coleman.

Spontaneous breaking globes I've seen were heat-stressed from someone running a broken mantle. I've had it happen twice. One had a frosted area that could only be seen in just the right light, but one evening it had a crack there that wasn't there before I ran it.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Can you still get them for $10??  The last ones I’ve seen are @$14-15. I would buy about 10  of them if I could get them for $10 shipped still.

I don't recall them ever having free shipping, but the globes are $8 each.

Yeah I just looked at their website. If I bought 12 shipping would be $32 so $10.66 each with shipping. I bought some off eBay that were $10 shipped so basically the same. But that was months ago.

That shipping sounds high buying by the case.  I'd call them up and confirm.

When I checked just now a box of 6 was $59.75 to CA, odd that it costs less to ship to CA.
I always add a few mantles to the mix. I like the 8003 for singles.

It's been two or three years, but when I last bought a case of globes (not from American), I recall the shipping for a case being about the same as shipping for one globe.  A case of globes is small and light.  I know shipping has gone up,  but these prices are unreal.  I'm guessing/hoping that their online system is just multiplying the quantity of one for shipping by the amount of globes and not taking into account that it can be one or two packages.  If it were earlier in the day, I'd call them myself just to find out.

The reason I asked about washing is sometimes someone will scrub a bit while washing.   A green scrubbie is too abrasive and often will create a spot that later cracks. There is a lot of internal stress in Pyrex glass.

I think borosilicate isn't stressed at all, that's why when it cracks it can be repaired. That's also why when they break it's not a big pop and just a little tink. That's exactly why there is practically zero risk from using a damaged, scratched or cracked globes. Unfortunately sometimes glass breaks, don't read too much into it. If there was ANY stored stress in the glass gluing it would be terrible advice. Cleaning a globe is never going to cause it problems unless you drop it. Cleaning and breaking is just one of those coincidences plain and simple.
